Alex's and Roger's Real Plans

Hey, I'm wondering if anyone can help me. In the last Song of the Lioness book, there's a couple of bits about Alex that I don't get, like when he and Delia are plotting against John, it says Alex "knew Roger would guess what he desired of any plans to take Jonathan from the throne." What's that about? and also when the book says "Of all of them, he alone knew Roger's real plans."

What do they mean? Anyone who knows what it's about, I'd really appreciate them sharing the info.

Thanks x

I always thought this meant that Alex was plotting because he wanted some power or something from Roger. Maybe to be Prime Minister or King's Champion? Also, I think Roger was not particularly interested in just ruling Tortall, but wanted to destroy with the earthquakes and that Alex knew this would happen, as well as knowing where Alanna would attack so he could delay her. How else would he know to be waiting...

He knew Roger just wanted to destroy Tortall and all the people not rule them. Alex was obsessed with being the best and wanted to duel Alanna because she was the only one he had not beaten

Reference Links

I'm working my way through Alex's page, adding more information, and there's a reference to a RandomBuzzers page that doesn't exist anymore.  And, I don't seem to be able to find the information from that reference anywhere else.  Should I just delete the information, which is a bit superfluous anyway, or simply remove the reference link?  I think the information that is being referenced can be inferred from Alex's actions without the need for the reference.Magewhisper (talk) 00:12, June 17, 2016 (UTC)
